IABM Announces Student Award Winners

News Image
The winners of the 2013 IABM Engineering Student Awards have been revealed.
The programme recognises "high-achieving college students in the fields of broadcast engineering or media technology," with each winner receiving financial support for attendance at IBC2013.
The winners of the 2013 IABM Engineering Student Awards are Zoe Wyeth of the University of Salford, Julian Theis of the RheinMain University of Applied Sciences, Adam Plowden and Amy Tinker of Kingston University, Pierre Hamme-Gerome and Antonin Morel of the Université de Valenciennes, Kathryn Savage of Southampton Solent University, Lennard Bredenkamp of HTWK Leipzig, and Evgenii Smirnov and Anna Nikolaeva of St. Petersburg State University of Film and Television.
"Winning an IABM Engineering Student Award not only has provided me with the fantastic opportunity to attend IBC, but also has given me confidence in myself as a graduate broadcast engineer," said Zoe Wyeth. "I hope to leave the conference knowing more about cutting-edge broadcast technology, having new contacts and friends within the industry, and having had an enjoyable week in Amsterdam!"
"I am very proud of winning an IABM Engineering Student Award, which presents a student like me with a unique opportunity to attend the IBC show," said Pierre Hamme-Gerome.
"In Amsterdam I will have the chance to meet some of the most influential people from the broadcast world, to network with professionals and other students, and to discover the latest media technologies for myself."
The IABM Engineering Student Awards are part of the IABM's global training initiative, a programme created to help increase the industry's available pool of skilled broadcast engineers and technical staff.
The programme is open to any student undertaking a full-time course of study directly related to broadcast engineering and media technology. This year's winners were selected based on a 500-word essay explaining how the student would be able to benefit from attending IBC2013.
"Once again, the IABM Engineering Student Awards recognise a remarkable group of young men and women and provides them with the resources to see the latest developments in broadcast and media technology, learn from senior industry figures, and perhaps even meet a future employer," said Roger Crumpton, a founding director and trustee of the IABM Educational Foundation which funds the programme.
"The Awards are designed to showcase the broadcast and media technology industry to some of the brightest and best students from around the world. While the individual winners gain a significant personal benefit, the awards programme itself promotes the sector and encourages others to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to pursue the exciting career opportunities available. In this sense, the programme benefits not only the 10 winners named today, but the field as a whole."
